Bwing. Has there ever been a more beautiful sound than “bwing”? Until I release my rap album – I think not. There you are, furiously letting your fingers dance over the controller. Your health is low, but your hope is high. One last shot in the monsters eye and – BWING – you just earned a new Trophy. I don’t know about you, but I’m not used to hearing praise so I get as giddy as Gordon Freeman in a specialty crowbar store when I hear that glorious sound. It’s then I know that another Trophy has joined my wall of virtual pride.
Good news! On September 6th when Resistance 3 launches, my fellow Trophy hoarders and I will have the opportunity to hear the majestic “Bwing” 59 times! That means we’re guaranteed at least 59 more moments of pure joy. You can even get a Platinum Trophy. That’s a moment of super joy – I’m talking “Firefly gets a new season” joy. But getting there isn’t going to be a cake walk (which I don’t even know what that it is, but it sounds awesome). You’ve got 58 other “Bwings” to acquire before you can join the R3 Platinum Posse. Let’s see what some of my personal favorites are, shall we?
Gamescom has been amazing. However, something is still missing – an unyielding void in the soul of Resistance that needs to be filled. Something cold. Something unyielding. Something… Sledgehammery? Yes, that’s it! We need to show you the Sledgehammer, Resistance 3’s brutally blunt new melee weapon. Here – let me summon the video gods and see if they can whip something up for the latest R3 Dev Diary.
By George (or Rey), they’ve done it! Our all-new Resistance 3 Dev Diary features the first gameplay footage of Capeill’s intimate side – intimate as in he’s close enough to Grims to smash in their deformed faces with a giant Sledgehammer. It’s pretty wicked (except if you’re a Grim).

Hey everyone! During our Comic-Con Resistance 3 panel, we discussed our motion-capture techniques and how they helped us build the game’s story. We showed an in-progress behind-the-scenes video that chronicled our mocap process in Resistance 3, and how we have continued to evolve that process from the work we did on Resistance 2. That video is now complete, and we’re excited to share with you how we really brought the cinematics and characters of Resistance 3 to life. Give it a watch above.
We hope you enjoyed that behind-the-scenes look! As always, we’d love to hear from you, so send us a reply on Twitter or on our Facebook wall or join the conversation at MyResistance.net. If you have questions about the on-going beta and updates to it, please be sure to check out our recent post here.
If you’ve been following Resistance 3 coverage over the last few months, one of the cool features of our game is that many of our main multiplayer maps take place outside of the United States (where the single-player campaign focuses on Joseph Capelli’s harrowing journey from Haven, Oklahoma to New York City). In the multiplayer beta, you will find the Trainyard map, set in sunny Bogota, Colombia, as well as the Seaside map set in Glamorgan, Wales, UK. Earlier this year, we revealed the Prison MP map, which is set in Fort Lamy, Republic of Chad in Africa.
Many of you have probably heard about Global Resistance by now. If you haven’t yet, now is the time! I wanted give you more details about what Global Resistance is as well as explain some of the tweaks we’ve made since launch (I’m looking at you “guy who stopped playing because the humans always won”).
Global Resistance is a massive online strategy game developed by Soap Creative. Here’s the official definition: Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set amidst mankind’s final stand in the Resistance universe. You enlist as a Chimera or Human commander and take over the world to unlock exclusive Resistance 3 multiplayer skins, in-game titles and XP boosters. Customize your base, build and deploy your personal arsenal alongside thousands of other players, or attack your rivals directly in head-to-head skirmishes. But what does all that mean? How do you play Global Resistance?
Hopefully you caught the news yesterday that Resistance 3 has gone gold! We also debuted our new story-centric campaign trailer. You may also know that the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta early access has begun for owners of specially marked copies of SOCOM 4. We’re still very much in beta mode, with regards to fixes (especially for matchmaking to address the freezes and disconnects), so please keep reporting what you see. We hope to have a patch soon that will address many of these issues, but in the meantime, thanks for bearing with us.
I’m here today to bring the news that Resistance 3 has gone gold, and has been delivered to manufacturing for its September 6th release date. Everyone here at Insomniac is excited for you to get your hands on the game we’ve been working so hard on for the last three years. Even now, our work isn’t complete, as we are actively working on the Online Beta, and will be bringing a Day 1 Patch to the game to bring updates and tweaks to the final product. The public beta begins today for folks who have codes from SOCOM 4, so we’re looking forward to fragging you online.
In celebration of our gold announcement, we wanted to give you the first look at a brand new gameplay trailer from Resistance 3. For those of you who have followed R3 since the announcement of the game at GamesCom last year, this trailer brings things full circle. I don’t want to spoil it, so take a look below:
